Muse hit the fast lane in spectacular video for new single Something Human

Muse have released a spectacular virtual reality-inspired video for their brand new single Something Human.

The track will feature on Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme’s upcoming and as-yet-untitled next studio album, which will arrive in November.

Speaking about Something Human, which was co-produced by the band and Rich Costey and mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent, frontman Bellamy says: “Life on the road can bring out your inner beast, this song and video is about taming that beast, desiring a return to something human. Plus, Teen Wolf is cool.”

The striking promo was directed by Lance Drake, who was also onboard for Muse’s video for Dig Down (opens in new tab).

He adds: “Our aim with Something Human was to continue the journey that began in Dig Down and Thought Contagion (opens in new tab).

“Pulling further into a simulated world we follow Matt, Dom and Chris on the chase of a lifetime – where something as simple as returning some video tapes becomes an epic journey.”

Further album details will be revealed in due course.
